Calcio Mercato report that Tottenham Hotspur representatives are flying to Italy for a transfer ‘blitz’ as the club look to complete deals to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar and Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

It has been reported that Jose Mourinho wants to add another centre-half and a striker to his squad before the transfer window shuts on October 5.

Skriniar has been mentioned as a target for Spurs, with a swap deal with Tanguy Ndombele originally being mooted (Sky Sports Italia via Sempre Inter).

However, Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed on Tuesday that swapping Ndombele is no longer an option for the Lilywhites, who were looking to negotiate a straight fee with Inter for the centre-back.

Romano also revealed that Spurs had another shot at signing Milik after the Polish striker’s move to Roma fell through.

Calcio Mercato believe that the North Londoners will understand the margins of negotiations for both players on Wednesday but they claim that the deals will be anything but straight forward.

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be over the moon if we land Skriniar and Milik, as I believe we would have had a near-perfect transfer window. However, I worry that we could only afford both players if we are expecting a huge cash influx, which makes me fear that Dele Alli is likely to be sold.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. So the striker we have been crying out for two years or more and a top class centre half and u are worried about loosing Ali. The guy is lazy, does not train well. Sorry I’m all for it even if it means loosing Ali.
